Losing weight is just a mouse click away thanks to a new weight management site by CDPHP. Weigh 2 Be combines the tools and information you need to lose weight safely and effectively, while offering the support and resources to live a healthy lifestyle.
The Weigh 2 Be site is free and open to the public. That means you do not need to be a CDPHP member to take advantage of many of the resources on the website, which include weight assessment tools, recipes, tips for parents, mobile apps, wellness support, and much more.
“We know that maintaining a healthy weight can prevent the onset of many health conditions, including diabetes, coronary disease, cancer, and more,” said Elizabeth Martin, director of population health and wellness, CDPHP. “As a community-based health plan, it is our responsibility to provide people with the tools they need to lead healthier lives.
